belking 600N HD Dual Band
I purchased this router becuase of these 4 reasons. 1. dual band 2. gigabit lan 3. 2 usb ports 4. price. I looked around and found the belkin model to be the most satisfying in regards to the four aspects as mentioned above. The reason that really attracted me to this model away from others was the 2 usb ports which meant usb hard drive for network access and usb printing for network access. The router has been performing adequately so far. I love the econo mode which you can turn off the wireless radios at a desired time of day with some scheduling tweaks. I can access my usb stick/hard drive in my ps3, xbox360, and all my other pcs which are connected to my network. The printer is also accessible throughout my network as well. The only cons I have encountered so far and is driving me nuts is the lack of innovative Quality of Service. It is very simple and one cannot do much with the feature in its firmware. The other con is these applications which are used with the router along to perform sort of a home media sharing network. The applications do not run from the router as I thought they would. A host pc is needed in order to run all of the included applications which in my opinion is a bit of white lie for those that thought they would run directly from the router. All in all I am very satisfied with this purchase and device. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking into buying this for their home/office network.
